Flying Heel Hook- Here is my favorite set up for it
Alan Belcher here, and this is one of my favorite ways to get the inside heel hook. I like this one because when you time it right it's really difficult to stop, and it puts you right in the "4/11" position, which is my favorite position for leglocks.
Mikey Triangles helps me demonstrate the move here, and it's one he uses a lot too. We don't break down too many details in this video, but if you put in your email I'll be sending out free instructional videos regularly, including some real detailed breakdowns on techniques like this. I also like having contests and giveaways pretty often. Check it out in the link below:

You're one of my favorite fighters. Plus I am also big Johny Cash fan

Putting this message here because I'm not sure how to email you.
My input on the matter is I personally counter this by pushing their knee (in this case) away and to your inside to prevent the leverage. Would you press the situation here or would switch your opponents legs to a standard position.
Also, why 4/11?

Hi Alan, great video, I'm signed up.
I take it the emphasis on the 4-11 position is to avoid the mexican standoff you can get into at 50/50?

Holy **** it's Alan Belcher.
Fucking amazing fighter! On a win streak right now too :)
Any plans for another fight against Akiyama? You were robbed in that fight, imo.
Sweet video. Those kids are starting young!

Thaaaat was awesome. How hard would it be to hit the achilles lock instead, if you were fighting in an environment were heel hooks were not kosher?The fool thinks himself immortal,
If he hold back from battle;
But old age will grant him no truce,
Even if spears spare him.

So we just got done playing with it. The counter I mentioned worked half the time. Will work out the kinks.

Thanks for posting this here. Do you have any ruleset specific counters to uchi-mata if you are competing in a tournament that bans kani basami or heel hooks? If so, would you mind sharing sometime?
By the way, GREAT job against Palhares.

Also their are probably other names for this position with other reasons, but the reason we call it the 4/11 position is because you have a "Figure 4" triangle locked on one of your opponents legs which are both stretched out resembling the number "11". From here you have a plethora of offensive options; most of which are submissions attacking the legs.
